  STS065-096-010 Lanai, Hawaii, U.S.A. July 1994
Lanai, located west of Maui and south of Molokai, is separated by the Auau and Kalohi Channels, respectively. Volcanic in origin, Lanai's highest elevation [4714 feet (1437 meters)] is near the north-central part of the island. Island wakes trail to the southwest of Lanai and on the leeward side of Maui. Scientists are interested in mapping the turbulent areas on the leeward side of the islands to help document processes by which energy is transported downstream from these and other islands. The extensive use of Lanai for the development of the pineapple industry during the mid-1900s has recently been replaced by resort development.
